Around 5,000 ISIS-trained jihadists are in Europe—all European Union (EU) nationals, nonwhites who have gained European citizenship after legally immigrating there, EU’s police chief has warned.
Speaking in an interview with the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung in Germany, Rob Wainwright, who has been head of Europol since 2009, said that Europe could expect ISIS or “other religious terror groups” to stage an attack somewhere in Europe with the aim of achieving “mass casualties among the civilian population.”
Wainwright, who also served in senior positions in Britain’s National Crime Intelligence Service, went on to say that “Europe is currently facing the biggest threat of terrorism in more than ten years.”
The ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris last November have shown that ISIS has an international dimension, he continued.
“It is expected that the IS or other religious terrorist groups will carry out an attack somewhere in Europe, with the aim of achieving high losses among the civilian population.”
He warned that attacks would come not only from groups, but also from individual perpetrators.
“In addition, there is an increasing risk of individual assassins,” Wainwright said.
He said that the huge influx of what he called “foreign fighters”—but what the controlled media insists on describing as “Europeans”—coming back from receiving ISIS training in Syria and Iraq posed a huge threat.
“The growing number of foreign fighters within the EU poses completely new challenges,” Wainwright said, being careful to distinguish these 5,000 EU nationals from the “refugee” influx.
As EU passport holders, the 5,000 ISIS-trained terrorists have no need to pose as “refugees” and are free to come and go as they please—all the direct product of decades of pro-Third World mass immigration policies pursued by all western European governments.
Wainwright’s comments came after Austrian authorities confirmed that another two “refugees” had been arrested in Austria in connection with the Paris terrorist attacks.
The two, a 28-year-old Algerian and a 34-year-old Pakistani, had entered Europe posing as “refugees.”
Arrested at a “refugee shelter,” the pair admitted that they had arrived in Greece with some of the Paris attackers, but prosecutors said in a statement that earlier reports which said they were supposed to take part in the Paris attacks, were untrue.
Meanwhile, another two “refugees,” a 25-year-old Moroccan and a 40-year-old Algerian, were also arrested by the Austrian police after it emerged that they were in “close contact with the first two suspects,” a prosecutors’ statement said, adding that “it can be assumed that all four are members of ISIS.”
